Homework practice logs.Students are expected to record the minimum time per week. (60 min.) Parents are to sign this weekly to receive a grade. Turn in dates are every two-weeks and are indicated on the practice log and announced in class.Music and instrument casesAll music is to be kept in the music folder (provided in class) and should taken home along with the instrument. Small instruments are the students responsibility and should be taken home every A-day. Students must have an id tag on the case, these are available from Mr. Mullikin if your case does not have one. The daily participation grade depends on not only class effort but having the materials. Be sure to check the back of your practice log for an A/B day schedule.School-owned, instrument loans:Anyone using a school instrument must have a completed loan-form and non-refundable deposit. There are very few numbers of school-owned instruments for available on a loan basis.TeacherHello! I am a graduate of the UNCG School of Music. I have been teaching at Meadowlark Middle since 2001.
